I am ASSUMING the answer to my question will be a resounding NO… but wanted to ask.
I’m new to beekeeping and have just ordered a Flow Hive and have ordered Bees to be picked up in April.
I live in a major city on the 2nd floor of a 2 story Condo (only 2 units in the building). I have neighbors on all sides that are roughly 15-20 ft away. I have a 2nd story deck. The person who lives downstairs from me in my 2-story condo has her back-door directly below my deck. The deck is a typical wood construction with 0.5" gaps between the slats. Closest side-walk would be 20 ft away.
I would love to have my flow hive on that deck (no place to put it at ground level)… but its probably just too close to my neighbors… especially the downstairs neighbor. Do you guys agree? Does anyone have similar experiences?
Side Note: I checked, an beekeeping is completely legal in my area without restriction.
Here is a picture of the proposed layout…
Proposed Location would be to the Left side of the 2nd floor deck (as viewed in the photo). Notice the back door in the center below.
